4. JT Schwartz
After redshirting during his freshman season, Schwartz has started in 57 games the past two seasons for the Bruins slashing a combined .377/.481/.561. The 21-year old has had a previous track record of success offensively at every level he has played making him one of the more intriguing first baseman in this Draft.
Rated as the No. 145 overall prospect available, the 6’4 first baseman displays a excellent ability to hit for contact, as well as drawing walks and limiting strikeouts. While he might not hit for power as often as other first baseman on this list, Schwartz you could make the argument has the best pure-hit tool, grading out at a 55.
3. Niko Kavadas
School: Notre Dame
Rated as the No. 135 overall prospect in this Draft, you won’t find many other first baseman available with more impressive power potential than Kavadas. Evident by 46 career HR’s across 161 career games at Notre Dame, Kavadas also hit 22 HR’s in 2021 ranking third in Division-1.
At 6’1 235 lbs., Kavadas’ biggest tool is his raw power which he has shown an ability to consistently tap into with his left-handed swing. While he spent time early on at Notre Dame at third base, Kavadas most likely projects to either remain at first base in the future, as well as becoming a prime DH option.
